[en] Significant ageing processes are ffecting many regions across Europe and are changing the social and spatial profile of cities. In Trieste, Italy, a joint initiative by the Public Health Agency and the Social Housing Agency has developed a program targeting conditions that allow people to age at home. The outcomes of the program stress the need to redesign and to reorganize the living environment as a way to oppose to the institutionalization of older people in specialised nursing homes. Based on intensive field work, this article presents and discusses the original and innovative inputs that the case study is offering to the Italian and European debate.
